Ross, who is also known by his alter ego, Tyra Sanchez, was allegedly caught with a small amount of weed while driving with a pal in a Chevy Impala.

He was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on charges of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and released the next day on $1,300 bond.

Cops noticed the Impala had its windows tinted too dark, and after pulling the car over an officer claimed he could smell "an odor of raw marijuana."

Soon enough, he joined our celebrity mug shot gallery. Fiercely.


Awwww Tyra Nooooooooo!!! Still


ive never heard of ppl gettn high off weed do anythng crazy. But i agree@ Kelleigh


@ Denielle...raw marijuana does smell ALOT different from when you smoke it.


@kelleigh ive never heard or seen someone get busted 4 driving crazy under the influence of just marijuana but 4 alcohol or both n the system. Mary jane just relaxes u not make u act like a damm fool. Notice the ONLY reason why cops pulled him over was 4 dark tinted windows. Not 4 drivin crazy ect if it wasnt 4 them windows he wouldnt uve got popped


Whatever!!! The smell of RAW MARIJUANA????? Anyone else think maybe this was racial profiling....??? And I'm white!!! Please, can the police be a little more less ridiculous? It just gets really old..


He looks much better as Miss Tyra! I'll never understand why adults don't just get high and drunk at home. Then, you wouldn't have to worry about cops and injuring innocent people on the road. Oh, well.
